Pep Commits Future To Man City

Pep Guardiola has committed his future to Manchester City, after agreeing to a two year extension to his contract.

With his contract due to expire next year, the 49-year-old has now agreed to a deal that will stay at the club at least until 2023.

Guardiola, who has won two Premier League titles in his five seasons at the club, had the following to say:

“Ever since I arrived at Manchester City I have been made to feel so welcome in the club and in the city itself – from the players, the staff, the supporters, the people of Manchester and the chairman and owner.”

“Since then we have achieved a great deal together, scored goals, won games and trophies, and we are all very proud of that success.”

“Having that kind of support is the best thing any manager can have. I have everything I could possibly want to do my job well and I am humbled by the confidence the owner, chairman, Ferran (Soriano) and Txiki (Begiristain) have shown in me to continue for two more years after this season.”

“The challenge for us is to continue improving and evolving and I am very excited about helping Manchester City do that.”
